Our Mission and Vision

Transforming students by raising their awareness of urban issues and mobilizing them to live out the incarnational gospel in cities around the world. 

Empowered by the Gospel, Global Urban Perspectives seeks to invite students to love by learning and listening in urban communities. Through immersive experiences and robust dialogue, we aim to deconstruct misconceptions, and in their stead, foster an informed imagination of the beauty and depth of urban spaces.

How to Get Involved

Global Urban Perspectives offers a number of campus events during the year. Please refer to our Announcements for a listing of these events.

GUP also offers summer immersion programs to different locations both domestic and abroad. Some of our partners include:


"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near." Hebrews 10:23-25 


If you are interested in living incarnationally among the urban poor, please contact our Assistant Director of Summer Programs Corrie Johnson at corrie.johnson@wheaton.edu
